Dr. Mark Ackerman specializes in psychological testing and forensic report preparation at his Atlanta, GA office.
As a clinical forensic psychologist my work includes psychological evaluations of civil litigants, criminal defendants and immigration hardship applicants. The assessments that I perform (see below examples) are designed to provide objective information for use by a third party, e.g., court system, attorney, private business, insurance company or government agency but can also be used to assist with treatment planning. To remain objective and avoid conflicting interests, I usually do not become involved in rendering treatment for clients involved in these cases. I currently devote 65% of my time to working with individuals and their attorneys on a range of psycho-legal matters including the following:
Parental Fitness Psychological Evaluation
Hardship and Asylum Evaluations
Fitness for Duty Psychological Evaluations
Finding an Expert to Conduct the Immigration Hardship Psychological Evaluation
